Los Angeles - Simon Cowell is bringing Britain's Got Talent to Afghanistan.

The music maven is branching out into new territories by launching his flagship talent show contest in the war-torn country this autumn, and is currently on the hunt for superstar judges to join the panel.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Simon has always believed Got Talent can work anywhere, because - no matter where you are - people have amazing talents.

"There may be a war raging in Afghanistan - but people are still living their lives and they enjoy watching TV just like anyone else."

Ratings have been strong for BGT and its American counterpart since Simon launched the show in 2006, and spin-offs have since been created in 57 countries in total, including Australia, China and Germany.

The new Afghan format, due to be aired on more "progressive" channel 1TV, is likely to allow British troops stationed in military bases to audition for the chance of winning the big cash prize.

The insider added: "Rules are being drawn up but there is a possibility troops will be allowed to enter - assuming they can get permission."
